New Shelves

Originally I was going to do stainless shelves, but decided against it. Instead I used the black/brown version.
This is now the view as I walk into the kitchen, much nicer than a blank wall.
And here’s a little tip on how to save those allan keys that come with this ‘put it together yourself’ stuff: keep the key with the item. Here it is at the top of the back shelf, where it can’t be seen.

Linking this to Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch


  1. Cute! I love floating shelves especially in a kitchen. Your kitchen is looking great! Nice work.
